    Encounter in Europe with a wide garden beautifully landscaped walking down Haight Street, and residence buildings. Building has a profound sense of history. Sign in Japan Japanese name "Government House" and "Government House". Open Day open day, next is "10/15/2017".

  • Beautiful lawns. Not always open to the public. No people anywhere. Could have an undisturbed picnic lunch here, kids would love the lawn slopes.
  • Beautiful gardens with plenty of space to go and sit and enjoy your lunch under the shade of a tree. My favourite escape from the office
  • Really good place for the seat of Government. Directly on the river, easily approachable by boat in the night, easily scalable walls and no visible guards. A+ would besiege again.
  • Government House is open a couple of times during the year to the public. When it is open, take hold of the opportunity to view it. It is amazing.
  • Very nice gardens - recommend visiting when open to public. The house inside is pretty standard - British style

Where to stay in Perth

When you choose your Perth accommodations, remember that this city stretches over a wide area, which can cause issues for visitors with limited time to sightsee. The best way to remain close to urban transportation is to stay in the central business district or neighboring Northbridge, where you'll also find the greatest selection of hotels. To avoid the center's big crowds and steep hotel prices, consider booking a room in the coastal town of Mandurah, easily accessible by Perth's reliable suburban railway system.
